This might blow your mind, but Grat and Gratulin are two different people.

On that - what is the sign I should be getting and where would it be in VR (I have to look around even for flags :P) to tell me im cutting?

There's a 0/3 Warning thingy that you can place where ever you want, there's also a red dot thing that appears if you've gone off track. If you enter back onto the track whilst that red dot is still showing then you'll get a warning. On the 4th warning you get the penalty then it starts again.

If you look through the PLP forum topic, wally has listed some updates implemented throughout the versions. One of the big things you need to understand about it, is that once you go offtrack, you won't get a warning straight away, you'll get it once you come back on a racing surface without slowing down. So make sure you slow down enough before entering back onto the track to avoid warning for little offtracks.

The problem with Silverstone, is that there's some corners where there's a bit of grass and then further offtrack is more tarmac that the app considers to be racing track. I got a couple warning tonight for missing a corner and not getting the chance to slow down because a split second later I'm back on a racing surface.

I also run with VR, and I have the warning thing sitting kinda of on the bonnet, so it's very clear when that red dot pops up I know I need to slow down before re-entering.

Hey, you have the same rig as me :)

The only thing I have different compared to that picture is that I've swapped the shifter and keyboard swivel thingy to the opposite sides

I'll go with the Lambo, thanks Wally

I do have an old tablet that I could use but since moving to VR, most of this stuff is pointless as I can't see it.

I still use an app on my tablet for iracing though, I set it up pre race and all it does it automatically calculates how much fuel to put in during a pitstop. So I don't need to look at that one, just have faith in that it's not going to get it wrong.

I'll join in, one ferrari for me plz Wally

GT3 please Wally

Is nurburgring going to be the nordschleife or just the GP track?

+1 for modern

It was a good night of racing for me, only a couple little bumps with others but nothing worth mentioning, just close racing all round.

Race 1: I placed well in qualifying so felt I had a good chance to get a good finishing position. The Phil/Bueller incident gave me 2nd place after T1 and from there on I just had to keep it on track, didn't get a chance to battle for the lead as DC made a good gap after that T1 incident and from there he just kept his pace up when needed to manage the gap. I had some good pressure from Matthew most of the race but in the end I was able to hold out and finish 2nd.

Race 2: Apparently my fastest lap, wasn't actually that fast. Probably because most laps I was being a bit protective to make sure I wasn't giving Matthew any chances to make a move. Still not a bad start, starting in 6th. Had some good racing with Jeremy at the start until I went a little wide and lost a position to him. Similar thing happened with Matthew, he got a good run on the last corner when i didn't and was able to take me down the front straight. A few laps later I was able to return the favor and do the same move back on Matthew. Then I found myself battling that Wally guy and what a battle it was! I got close a few times but was just getting beaten down the straights, I was trying to pressure Wally into making a critical mistake but it never came. Nice driving Wally! I really enjoyed that :D

Stewards have come down hard so need to review it!  :)

And yet some might say not hard enough, seeing it seems anything after lap 1 was not even looked at. With this being my first season with this group it's been very clear to me that so long as you race clean on lap 1 for the rest of the race you can drive like a PlayStation warrior punting AI and no one cares because it didn't happen on lap 1....

This is not exactly true. If someone wrongs you throughout the race, you can always request that Wally look at it. Wally is only initially looking at the first lap otherwise he'll be at it all night but if someone takes you out throughout a race and doesn't redress it then just make note of the lap it happened on so Wally can look at it later.
This is actually something that I'm unsure of myself, I've seen it done before so always believed it's a possibility to request any incident be looked at further. If Wally could confirm this, that would be great.

Server's up. I remembered how to do it  ::)

Unavailable content. Did I do something wrong or did you actually forget how to do it?

Nope, I done goofed.
I extracted Zandvoort files into Vallelunga....

if anyone else has tried these do you think its to hard for folks who have had no practice for a fun run ?

Dunno, but I'm going to just rock up on the night and wing it :D

Hi, I'm new here but wishing to give it a go
I have 120 hours on AC and I was wondering if I could just 'rock up' to a race
And also what times are the races?
Hi Nic and welcome. Read this post http://xgn.com.au/index.php?topic=307.0 and follow the instructions. I'm away for the next two Tuesdays, but there's some fun runs that Phil.8 is organising (you'll find the threads).

Wally beat me
everything wally said, Next couple of weeks are fun runs/testing for upcoming seasons :)  any questions send me a pm or just ask here

You can also turn up to more casual Thursday night races (check the forum).

On Tuesdays, qualifying starts at 8:30pm Eastern, with the first race at 8:45.

So I guess it's ok if I just turn up on tues after following instructions?

Are there any mods required?
I'll try to make it on the 5th September as I can't race this Tuesday

You will need the PLP app, that's available here http://xgn.com.au/index.php?topic=758.0

There are some others that aren't required but are very helpful to have. e.g helicorsa

I wish I could of joined in for this practice, my internet ran out of data a few days ago and resets at midnight tonight so one more night to go before I can actually internet at home. I guess I'm going to watch the state of origin tonight then... I'm still voting for the escort, it's always fun.
